Form fill seal equipment is a type of small machinery that is imbibed with flat plastics such as polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) sheets in order to create primary packaging products such as pouches and bags. Form fill seal equipment transforms such sheets into packages, fills it with either wet or dry products and then covers it without any form of contamination with an output rate of 20 to 50 cycles every minute. The market for form fill seal equipment is showing strong growth mainly because of the continuous single serve pack demand as these are widely used in various market segments.
Factors Impacting Form Fill Seal Equipment Market
Rising safety and health concerns has led to market opportunities for packaging products including aseptic pouches, bags, and stick packs. A critical factor responsible for the growth of form fill seal equipment market is the equipment versatility and speed that enables rapid changeovers to ensure productivity of operations. Form fill seal equipment is able to sustain operational effectiveness and also improve cost and resource efficiency. Form fill seal equipment assists manufacturers in meeting their capabilities in an extremely efficient and profitable manner. On account of high automation in the form fill seal equipment, the machinery requires less manual operation. Form fill seal equipment can create packaging systems such as rigid, semi-rigid, and flexible packaging. Another cause contributing to the growth of form fill seal equipment market is the adaptability of the machinery to fill almost any product into the primary package, be it in liquid or dry form.
Form fill seal equipment has limited capability in removing air that has become trapped in packages. Limited form fill seal equipment compatibility with multi-ply materials and specialty paper types is a constraint for form fill seal equipment market. In addition, form fill seal equipment needs manual package width adjustment. It is much easier for the machine to self-adjust the length as opposed to the width. Lastly, the technological advancements that have reduced the production process time are spearheading the growth of form fill seal equipment market.
